The taking pictures occurred after the person pulled a knife on the worker throughout a dispute, police mentioned. The sufferer’s damage was not life-threatening.

Police say an Ocean State Job Lot worker shot a person on the low cost retailer chain’s Brockton location.

A male worker shot a person inside Ocean State Job Lot’s Brockton location on Sunday, in line with police. 

The taking pictures occurred round midday following a “dispute” between the worker and the sufferer throughout which the sufferer pulled a knife on the worker, Brockton police spokesperson Darren Duarte mentioned in an electronic mail. First responders took the sufferer to a hospital with a nonlife-threatening damage.

Police have recognized the shooter and are within the means of finding him, Duarte mentioned. Fees are pending, however it’s unclear if they’re in opposition to the shooter, the sufferer, or each. 

“There seems to be no hazard to the general public at the moment,” Duarte wrote. 

The sufferer was in police custody at a hospital Sunday, WCVB reported. Boston 25 Information reported that the sufferer was a buyer, and that the shooter is eighteen years previous. 

Ocean State Job Lot, a reduction retailer with headquarters in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, mentioned in a press release that its Brockton location is at present closed.

“The protection of our prospects and associates continues to be our prime precedence as we work with the Brockton Police to analyze this incident,” the corporate mentioned.
